Burning Down the House

The Vagabond regrets to inform his surely rapt audience that the much-threatened return to the Journey will be delayed, unfortunately, as last week a fire destroyed much of the apartment from which the Journey was proceeding. I am ok, my love of music is ok, so the Journey will continue at a later date... and in many ways may be more important now than ever before, but I beg your patience, and your best wishes.

...Radio Silence...

The Vagabond has been rather silent lately, for which I humbly apologize, but as it so happens, I haven't listened to many new albums as a whole lately. In all honesty, the initial flurry of listening activity that started this music blog was inevitably going to be unsustainable, and I expect to gravitate towards a happy medium here eventually. I do have albums to listen to in my queue, including Jónsi's solo debut, Go; the Penguin Café Orchestra's first abum, Music from the Penguin Cafe; the Decemberists' rock opera from last year, The Hazards of Love; and I anticipate I'll be eager to review the new Stars record, The Five Ghosts, when it comes out next month along with other new releases as I hear them.

The Journey isn't over, it never is, but it comes and goes sometimes with the tide. Stay tuned...
